Former Royal Blind School pupil, Vicky Haylott is a singer-songwriter and former music teacher, while her husband Robbie is a software engineer. They are both completely blind. The couple live in Dalkeith with their three children: Aiden, 14, who has no vision and attends the Royal Blind School, and seven-year-old twins, Blake and Freya, who are both sighted. They believe they are among many blind and partially sighted people who feel abandoned in the midst of the measures being taken to deal with the impact of coronavirus.
